  • Is VCDS worth it ?


  • VCDS can do many things and it will be kind of interesting and fun to discover them in years, there will always come something new, something that will keep you attracted to it. Considering the fact that most dealers charge between $100-$150 just to scan your car for faults. This means that if you have 2 or 3 minor problems over the life of your car VCDS is essentially free. There are many little comfort changes you can make, there are performance logs you can create, there are controller resets you can do if/when you need to replace parts or disconnect the battery. There are the "regular" uses like reading and clearing fault codes. It is an incredible tool and very handy.
